Full Wolf Moon

By the light of the moon Full Wolf Moon

the full moon wolf howls. 

A spectator to some, 

the truth to others. 

Go dear ones and 

bask in the light 

of the full wolf moon. 

 

The January Full Moon is known as the Full Wolf Moon, and in some Native American cultures, it is called the snow moon, to other Native tribes this occurs in February.

 Why is it called this? 

In Native American and early Colonial times, the Full Moon for January was called the Full Wolf Moon. It appeared when wolves howled in hunger outside the villages as the snow piled high.  The cold bareness of the land, created an echo, a call to the land, Mother Gaia, for food.

  Why a wolf? 

In symbolism and the totem,  the wolf is known for a strong connection into higher intuition. If you have ever heard of the idiom “wolf’s instict;” this is true as they have a way of knowing just when to appear.   A wolf is an excellent communicator with other wolves, the spiritual world and Luna (moon). As the wolf appears to you, what does your instict say or react to, what you are trying to say, but are not be hearing. Another moment they are known for is “sinking your teeth into,” but rather, thinking in a scary manner, look at it as what is the wolf trying to show you, communicate to your tru heart.

January Full Moon: 

Let’s look at the energies that have been cycling for us.  This full moon is January 23, 2016 @ 05:46 pm PST.  This is at the end of Mercury Retrograde.  Mercury Retrograde is a time of reflection, it is a time to slow down, unwind and truly see what no longer serves you.  The bareness of the winter land, Merucry and the Full Wolf Moon can help you release that which no longer serves you.

Do not look at this as death, rather look at this as stillness. The stillness that you need to release, so that you may re-birth into a renewal of your heart and soul. A moment to go deep within, and sit with what you heart truly needs, not what the etheric ego desires.  As the wolf comes, sit with thee, request for the energies of the wolf to help you transfer what you need to Luna, so she may let it go.

Howls of the Wolf Removal of Old Baggage: 

  • Light a candle, and gaze into the flame. 
  •  Ask what do I need to release, stop listen and allow the stillness  unfolding to 
  • the beating heart.  
  • The heart whispers, allow this to deepen. Allow your heart to speak its truth. 
  •  Write down what comes, light this over your flame, and let it go releasing-to the wolf, who’s
  • howling, 
  • voicing echos will carry to Luna.  
  • Luna will release this from you. 
  • Take 3 deep breathes in. 
  • Rest.

 

Go Dear Ones, healing your heart by the light of the moon using an eternal flame.  Happy, Howling Full Wolf Moon and Happy Releasing, each and every Dear Heart. May you be peace and love to your heart.

Much Love, Much Light and Magical Blessings, 

Natasha

The Voice of Authenticity

By Natasha Botkin 

Have you heard the whispers in the air, the lull of the moon, the dance of the waves…

One thing is for sure, 2016 will not allow you to hide, procrastinate and ignore.  The energy vibes are calling, whispering, saying your truth and the more that you try to ignore or hide, the stronger the vibes may become.  

It is like 2016 is standing up and saying enough, enough with your shenanghans.  I am here in the now; now follow me.  

The old adage of fake it until you make it, no longer rings true.  The toll of the bell, rings of love, of truth, of light.  

Now, this is not to say, that there will be those, who insist on “their way” with the idea of “free will.”  I am here to gently emphasize that this is a 9 year in numerology, and the karmic energies are here to remind you; good or bad, but karma would like your attention and this will not sulk away, as it would in the past.  

Here are a few ways to show up in an authentic manner, which can calm the storm of the lesson if you allow. 

Ask yourself are you authentically expressing:

  1. A feeling 
  2. An emotion (allowing yourself to feel this emotion)   Do not ignore it, this will tighten its grip- Breathe in and out as the emotion happens.
  3. A thought
  4. Is this a feeling, emotion or thought? 
  5. Where did the feeling, emotion or thought originate from? Pay careful attention to the signs that your emotional body is sending to your etheric body (i.e.  is your chest tight- then breath into your heart center and allow the emotion to flow in and out of you-almost like an ocean wave). 
  6. Is this actually a belief?  What is the illusion that you are trying to convince yourself as your truth?

The old adage of fake it til your make it, is an old adage, pattern and belief; the awakened conscious is no longer tolerant of these shenanghans.  And like an alligator these are bubbling up to the surface.  

                                                          

 “Toil, toil, toil and trouble….” bubble, bubble bubble.

Place those woes in a pink bubble.  Take a deep breath, breath the woe into the pink bubble and gentle blow this away.  As the pink bubble leaves you, you may ask an angel to take it from you and/or request for them to help you pop it.    pink bubble

Awwww, this feels so much lighter, so much better.

May you feel light and love.

December 20, 2015-January 31, 2016 Opportunities

by Natasha Botkin 

 

 

We have many amazing gifts that are being bestowed upon us. 

What…just how is mercury retrograde a gift?   Awww dear hearts, it is truly a reflective gift.  There is a reason why it creates tension with electronics and communication with others.  This is a time to turn deeply inward and reflect the dark stillness of what your heart and soul whisper to you.

Luna, kicks this off with the full moon December 25, 2015 at the same time that mercury goes retrograde.  Often times, people are overly willing to release, release and release.  So much so, that you end up releasing too much, and yes that lesson will return with more power.

Hence why we have a spiral and not a tru path.  Please take this beautiful gift and enjoy.

Mother Mary

Mother Mary (who is no demoniational) is showing up with her love.  Ask her to cradle you in her Motherly Love.  The warrior angels are with Mother Mary, and they will help you to release what you request from them.

I cannot, stress enough to please take caution and to not be a in hurry; take mercury’s gift and honor yourself to gently reflect what that truly needs released.

Enriching African Violets

By  Natasha Botkin 

African Violet Single

I love to help you naturally clear away negative energy.

To some, the african violet is known to be a fussy plant, and many are nervous to attempt to grow this in their homes.  This may cause one to miss out on their special magical qualities.

How to care for an African Violet: 

  • This plant requires keeping the soil moist to dry.growing-african-violets-L-Jrwnt_
  • To encourage blooming please allow the soil around the roots to dry out before watering.
  • It is more benefical to water from the bottom with room temperature water; as this helps to avoid getting water on the leaves that can cause spotting damage.
  • The flowering plant requires moderate to bright light, some people will have special lighting units just for their african violet.

This may seem like a bunch of work.  The benefits far outweigh the care of the plant.

African Violet Cleansing Benefits: 

This beautiful plant and flower is a mega powerhouse in the form of cleansing one’s space.

Clearing of Neagtive Energies:

They are able to clear away the old, heavy energies that may weigh one down.  Especially an empath.  In any space this sweet beauty will powerfully eliminate those energies. Thus, having this in your home or office will help reduce the negative vibes that may be around.  No one will even be aware, and believe this to just be a beautiful flowering plant.

They are also incredible at transmuting the lower energies into a higher vibration.

Eliminating the Old: 

The presence of an african violet can help release the old, creating an easier transition.  The african violet says, “Please ask me to help you clear away your old nuiances and allow space for the new to take place.”

Bad Dreams and/or Nightmares: 

If you are one to have nightmares or bad dreams, place this near your bedside.  It will help to erase these from you.  Or a child who may have difficulty with sleeping, place this in their rooms and the fear of things that go bump in the night shall lessen.

Archeangel Qualities: 

Not only are the plants and flowers a great way to clear negative energies, this plant/flower also works with Archeangels.

Arachangel Michael who is known as -he who is like God, has a way to create releasing and clearing.  If you request the help of the african violet along with Archeangel Michael’s sword, this is a powerful combination. He will cut away the negative vibes and energies.  After he clears away the negative energies, ask Archeangel Michael, “Dear Archeangel Michael please place a protective divine white light all around me.”  Breath in 3 counts, hold for 3 counts and breath out for 3 counts, and so it is.  The african violet helps to continue to cleanse the area around one.

Archeangel Raphel is an angel of healing-one who heals God’s souls. Requesting his presence along with the afriacn violet can help the healing of a concerned ailment.  He is associated with the color green, and green sparkles are a sign that he is present.

Metatron is not an archeangel, but a human known in the form of a prophet and for his Merkaba cube.  This can help in the clearing of lower energies, and when utilizing Metatron’s gifts one may see pink and green lights.

Associated Chakras: 

The Third Eye and Crown chakras are associated with the african violet.  This dazzling plant can help get rid of any negative, old, heavy energies that are not allowing one to utilize these chakras.

If you feel that these chakras are blocked, sit near an african violet and ask the flowering or non-flowering beauty to help you remove that which is blocking.

Pets: 

Please be aware that sometimes cats like to nibble on this plant, and this is not good as ingesting the leaves is posinous.

 

May you enjoy the incredible grace that this flowering plant bestows upon us in a most natural manner. 

Much Love, Much Light and Magical Blessings
